Stewardship?  How would you define it?  Many people think stewardship is all about managing money and possessions.  If you don't have any (and on an University campus, there are definitely people in this situation!)  then you really don't need to concern yourself with being a good steward.   Right? 

Actually, stewardship is about managing ALL that God has provided including money and possessions, your health, the environment, your time and talents  - with the purpose of returning the first fruits of your life to God.  Giving from a  heart overflowing with joy and gratitude IS an act of worship to God for what He has given you.   

Maybe you are looking for ways to use your God-given talents as an act of worship.  Just a reminder that  many opportunities will be available at the  annual SERVE Expo  which takes place this Friday evening, September 11, 8:30-11:00 p.m.  Come to the  John N. Andrews statue where you will find many tables with displays, describing numerous choices of ways you can become involved in ministries  - on the campus and in the community.

The Defiant Kentucky Clerk

So is she a hero or a villain? Rowan County (Kentucky) clerk Kim Davis was welcomed by adulating throngs this Tuesday, when U.S. District Court Judge David Bunning, who had incarcerated her last week for contempt of court, released her from jail. At issue is Ms. Davis’ contention that as an Apostolic Christian her conscience forbids her from complying with the Supreme Court’s summer decision declaring same sex marriages legal across this nation. Citing her understanding of biblical injunctions against same sex sexual relations, the Rowan County clerk refused to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples applying for the Supreme Court mandated provision. . . read more
